Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking Mascara
vanillaaddict 4/3/2013 1:10:00 AM
Writing this after weeks of use, unfortunately it clumps a bit while applying its like a hit or miss when applying in terms of clump factor, and what i most hate is the flaking! It bothers me that i have to check my eyes during the day and remove the flakes though i just use it on upper lashes. However the effect it gives is nice (if that day i was lucky not to strugle with clumps while applying) but for me i am bothered more by the negatives so i am going back to my fav. Armani eyes to kill in black tube after this finishes :) Plus for me the tube is bulky. Which i am not a fan off.
I have finished one tube and will buy another one :) looove this lipstick its a great netural for me. With a hint of sort of creamy brown. I believe its beatiful effect varries from one lip color to another as its a bit sheer :) and my lips are fairly medijm to dark. Its one of my stables and its very unique to say the least and not boring :) i gave it 4 cause i wish it had better staying power! :(
i cant agree more on the "shedding" problem.. i have been using this brush every day for 5 months now and i really cant stand the shedding any more though its a good brush for contouring. i say try to find a better one :(
yup a nice different mascara indeed.. i personally like it very much.. it lengthens nicely and wont smudge.. and it wont clump only if you were careful enough. When i used it using a regular mirror, i hated it!! then i gave it more tries using a magnifying mirror.. and WOW it really worked so nice. However i am looking for both length and volume, so i will keep searching. But as far as this goes, i like it better that Dior Show Balckout.. and i can assure you it gives a more dramatic look than MAC plush lash. This is a great product for the value.. and the wand isnt that bad either when you use the magnifying mirror :)
i love this bronzer and i always get compliments when i wear it. Depending on the heavy or light application i use, also depending on the face spaces i cover, i get a different look! if i want a light warming effect.. i go light and i just use it to contour my face and dust a bit on my rest of my face to get a warming effect. if i wanted to have a more heavy bronzed look.. i go a bit heavy to get a "just got out of the sun" look. i find it a wonderful product with very very subtle sheer shimmer.. this is amazing.. all other products i tried are either matt or full of shimmer. overall, if you have not tried it.. i say go for it and specially for pale skin tones it will work wonders :D note: i also loooove its sister bronzer: casino
sweet :) i love sweet scents and this one has a peachy base.. i dont wear it daily so i am not bored with it yet.. its so different from other scents in the sweet array.. i would say its unique. and i love that factor :) how ever if you are looking for a sophisticated perfume,, this isnt the one
if you want a soft look.. this is for you.. i have been using this for the past months and i can confidently say it doesnt create a dramatic look even if layered.. rather just a soft natural look which is nice for daily use. but not for occasions. at least for me. the good thing about it.. is that it doesnt look spidery cheep.. rather elegant when applying if that makes sense :) still searching for HG mascara.
Lip Treatments -Yves Saint Laurent - Exfoliating lip balm

i really wanted this to work.. but seems i am the only one who didnt find it amazing though i have used it many times. I have chappy lips and i always need to exfoliate before i put lip stick on for a go out. so i have been searching for such a product. but now that i have tried this and found its results to be medium. i wont buy it again and rather try a mix of (olive oil and sugar) and see how that goes.
if your looking for a good scrub and balm.. this is not the one by all means. i hated it to the max, the scrub doesnt do anything at all.. and the balm is very thick and dry. its not worth it.. a very good lip scrub can be found in YSL and a good balm would be by mac. i wont ever repurchase this again.. the quality of benefit seems not good at all.
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

i bought this product based on the wow reviews here and all the good i heard about it.. unfortunatley i hate it! for me it smears my eye make up while i remove it.. on the contrast of Johnson_&_Johnson Replenishing Facial Wipes with Vitamin E, which i dearly love! those wipes do not smear eye product while you remove it. rather colors grab on to the wipe perfectly leaving your face and eyes clean. i wont buy this again :( i will stick with my wipes.. and will try MAC's wipes next :)
Cleansers -Johnson & Johnson - Replenishing Facial Wipes with Vitamin E

I tried Bi-Facil from Lancome as a make up remover.. but it smears what ever it wipes.. so i found these wipes actually do a much much better job..one wipe is enough for me to use to remove my whole make up. And the most brilliant thing is that it doesnt smear color while you are wiping.. rather the products get stuck immediately to the wipe. Great quality.. but the packaging is disappointing.. i would love a move secure packaging and that doesnt tear easily. Edit: These are the best! i am giving them 5 liippes. as i tried the MAC ones and they are so harsh on my skin! these are so soft. i just wish the packaging was better!
mmm not my type.. i hate the shimmer.. but i like the color only if i am using Laguna bronzer by nars for my face.. i think over all its a nice color.. just not my type of result look :)
Amaaazing color!! if your looking for something natural.. this is the one to try! i love it!! i cant imagine such color exists! i have so many other blushes.. this is by all means one of my fav ones.. pure angelic.. and i love the fact that its a cream blush.. i am in love with those since ive tried cream blushes i have lost my desire to use powder ones.

it didn't work out for me :( i think its the shade and the limitation of shades. the packaging is excellent and everything.. and its consistency is nice as you can build coverage gradually.. but i am still in the hunt for a better one for my under eye circles.. i wanna try Bobbi Brown's corrector :)
Deodorants -Clarins - Gentle Care Roll-On Deodorant

compared with the cream version of this deo.. i really hated this form (roll-on). it did nothing for me at all.. so much different than the cream form.. no protection what so ever.. i really had excellent results with the cream form. i wont buy this again.. rather go back to cream one :D
